Moonique is a fower colour modified carnation variety. Flowers have a violet/mauve colouration, due to the accumulation of delphidin-related anthocyanins. A variant form of acetolactate synthase (ALS) from Nicotiana tabacum was used as a selectable marker to confer tolerance to sulfonylurea herbicide.
